How long does homemade fudge keep?

Fudge has a pretty good shelf life, so go ahead and make a big batch to enjoy across the holidays and for easy gifts. Once set, place the fudge in an airtight container to keep it fresh.

It will keep and room temperature for around 2 weeks and in the fridge for 3 to 4.

Does it freeze well?

This peanut butter cup fudge can be frozen, but be sure to wrap it securely to keep it as fresh as possible. When thawed, it can become crumbly in texture, although it will still taste great!

Wrap your block of fudge in plastic wrap and foil and place in a freezer bag. It will keep well for up to 3 months.

What causes grainy fudge?

It’s very important not to stir the fudge too much as it cools down. Over stirring causes sugar crystals to form creating a grainy texture rather than a smooth and creamy one.

You only need to stir in the vanilla and Reese’s chunks with tow or three stirs before pouring it into your dish.

Tips!

  • Be sure to line your baking sheet with parchment. If you don’t, the fudge can get stuck to the tin. Let the parchment overlap the tin so that you can remove it easily.
  • You can melt the chocolate in the microwave, but do it in small increments and stir to make sure that it doesn’t burn.
  • Once cut into squares, place your peanut butter cup fudge into cellophane bags and tie with a ribbon for an easy gift.
